The agreement was signed by CSC Vice Chairperson Shuwaimi Al Kattab during a trip to Niger, and Niger Chamber of Commerce President Moussa Sidi Mohammed, in honor of Nigerian President Mahamadou Issoufou, who is visiting Saudi Arabia.
Al Kattab said that Saudi Arabia hopes to increase economic relations with the African continent as a whole, and Niger in particular. Niger, the largest country in West Africa, has vast opportunities for Saudi investors, including in oil, petrochemicals, mining, agriculture and livestock. The agreement signed will facilitate the exchange of economic information about markets and trade opportunities.
Among the seven articles of the agreement are exchanging business delegations, participating in exhibitions and forums for product introduction, and providing business publications and catalogs showcasing developments in both Saudi Arabia and the Republic of Niger.
